Trump moved to accept the existing agreements in a deal Friday after negotiations prompted by his threat to impose growing tariffs on Mexico in response to the border situation dragged on over several days.
An official stressed, though, that Mexico had agreed to do more now than they have in the past. DHS confirmed in a March 26 news release that Nielsen and Sanchez met in Miami and discussed the Migrant Protection Protocols and other security measures.
As of last week, Mexico had received almost 10,500 asylum seekers, who cross back into the United States when called to attend immigration hearings. Nielsen announced the MPP during a House Judiciary Committee hearing in late December.
However, Mexico already agreed to that during secret talks in March. He now had full confidence that they "want to get the job properly done".
A big part of the agreement announced Friday was an expansion of a program that makes asylum seekers stay in Mexico while their cases are considered. It was not immediately clear what Trump was referring to in his tweet.
The president delved into more of the deal's specifics on Saturday, including Mexico's promise to deploy their own troops at the border.
McAleenan also told Baier that Trump's tariff threat against Mexico helped get the country "to the table" to negotiate, saying that Ebrard "arrived within hours" to negotiate with the U.S. after the threats were made - leading to Friday's deal.

Mexico's president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, spoke at a unity rally on Saturday evening, just hours after coming to an agreement with the USA avoiding tariffs on Mexican goods.
"For Trump, it's a win-win".
The United States is the "world's piggy bank", but President Donald Trump's tariffs crackdown is changing that, Sen.
Obrador's visit to Tijuana created tensions among Mexicans who have conflicting opinions about the deal.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Saturday that Mexico has no intention of harming the United States, stressing that his country will collaborate with Washington on all areas, especially on "the migration phenomenon".
"We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the United States has been asking about getting for many years".
Lopez Obrador has struck a conciliatory tone with the USA throughout his administration, and has doubled down on that stance since Trump threatened tariffs last week.
